I am selling Serial #663, N60CB, for the owner in California. You may have known the owner, Gaylin Tustison. This is the airplane which was covered in a story on your website when the owner purchased the airplane in New York 3-years ago and flew it out to his ranch in California. After his arrival in California, a wild-fire burned through the ranch, destroying his home, hanger and airplanes. The only aircraft to survive the fire was the Seabee, however all logbooks were lost in the fire. Based on the times we have tried to reconstruct from the previous sale, it has 2,070 TT, and approx. 200 SMOH. The prop condition was documented in the story on your website, and it appears that it was overhauled when he bought the airplane.
Mr. Tustison has since passed away, and as a friend of the family, they are directing all inquiries through me. The aircraft must be hauled out by truck, as the ranch runway is too short to fly out of.
Price Reduced!: $22,000.00 $18,000.00 USD.
